Product Description

The new SANYO R227 WiFi internet radio is capable of delivering thousands of FREE internet radio stations and podcasts (sports, music, talk shows) from virtually every region of the world! As a stand-alone audio product which does not require a PC to operate or any subscription fees, the R227 provides listeners an easy way to access quality internet radio via a WiFi or broadband Ethernet connection. The R227 delivers exceptional sound performance through the use of high quality speaker drivers, dual tuned porting and matched amplifiers. Its distinctive design and styling makes it perfect complement in any home or office setting. The R227 makes it easy for sports fans, ex-patriots, and radio enthusiasts to enjoy their favorite local radio in non-local areas. Internet radio stations and podcasts can be easily searched by country or genre (MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, RM and WAV formats supported) with 8 Internet station presets. The device also boasts a FM stereo digital tuner with 8 station presets. Designed with the user in mind, the R227 offers simple, one-button on/off function viewing on easy to read backlit display. All features are easily accessible via the large rotary dial, front panel buttons or by using the full function remote control. The unit automatically updates internet radio stations and clock time setting from the internet. Additionally, the user can request new stations to be added to the station database. Clock and alarm functions allow users to wake up to Internet or FM radio programming as well as buzzer. High efficiency 90mm speaker drivers with dual tuned ports coupled with 4 watts RMS system amplifier power provide extended bass response resulting in a warm, rich sound which is virtually unmatched in tabletop audio.

The sound quality is good for a device of this size.
Dr. Gary W. Carriveau
The bad news is that my radio always lost the WiFi signal within 3 minutes of connecting, thus requiring a reboot every time.

The Sanyo R227 is a great little entry in the current lineup of internet radios.

Got my Sanyo R227 Internet radio from Amazon within 4 business days and was ready to rock 'n' roll. Easy set up and no problems finding stations to listen to. The sound is super for a clock radio, although I would have liked to see a tone control since the radio is a bit heavy on the bass. Build quality is impressive too. Compact and heavy; not at all cheap looking.

The bad news is that my radio always lost the WiFi signal within 3 minutes of connecting, thus requiring a reboot every time. I called Sanyo service and was met by the most droll, uninterested, tech support man on the face of the earth. He volunteered no helpful info and answered every question that I asked in the most bored, brief, demeanor imaginable. SANYO, find this unhelpful guy and DUMP him! Concluding on my own that my radio was faulty, I decided to exchange the radio at Amazon and I'm now awaiting the new radio. Never one to put all my eggs in one basket, though, I also order an Aluratek radio. I'll keep whichever radio works best!

Got the replacement radio today (10/6) and everything works great. I'm very impressed with the R227 so far. I'll be returning the Aluratek to Staples tonight. It's much smaller than the R227 and doesn't have the quality feel, or appearance of the R227. It couldn't beat this Sanyo R227 as a bedside radio since it has only one speaker. The Aluratek unit also has a cheap plastic smell. The Sanyo has no odors to overcome.

Buyers of this great Sanyo radio need to be aware that the 8 presets are, thankfully, not the only way to save your favorite stations. To get many more favorites, you'll merely log on to the Reciva site, enter your radio registration number, and their massive list of Internet stations is quickly at your fingertips.

I just bought this for my wife and have played with it most of the evening. If you've ever thought of owning something like this, and have the extra cash, go for it. If you have a solid WiFi and Cable/DSL service, and still love to listen to radio or even streaming our playlist from your hard drive, pick this up. The Grace product is okay, but this one rocks. There's always going to be some little issues or glitches with a product like this, because of the signal. Every once in a while it drops out, but repicks the signal right back up again. I have it 30 feet away from our network. We have 2 laptops, two XBox 360s and two regular desktops on the one WiFi router and its only dropped once this evening and traffic is always heavy with my boys online. My wife loves it and so do it. The quality of the sound is amazing. Even streaming at 32K on something like Air America or NPR, is solid sounding. I searched for The Gong over in German and found it, and it came through very strongly and sounding great. Its MP3 streaming functions from the computer are awesome. Just share out a folder or two on your hard drive where you have music and it reads the list and pulls the tags in for the songs. And if that isn't enough...this baby even does the dishes. Just kidding. :) Its one hell of a product. I'll tune back in, over a couple of months and give an update or two...but this is well worth the coin if you would like the power of the internet radio throughout tht house. :)

The Sanyo R227 is a great little entry in the current lineup of internet
radios. The unit has an attractive brushed aluminum front and produces
rich, premium sound from the twin side-mounted speakers. Before buying,
I compared the Sanyo to the Grace and C Crane radios. The Sanyo offers
more than either in this price range. The unit has a sleep timer (15/30/60/90 min.)not mentioned in the Amazon specs. The R227 was easy to set up and connected to my network within minutes. The control panel is intuitive and easy to navigate. The unit was also able to connect by Wifi when moved to an another room about forty feet away when tested.
The radio is compact enough for a night stand but has the weight and
feel of a quality made audio component. I highly recommend the R227.

I purchased a Sanyo WiFi R227 Internet Radio from Amazon.com in August of 2009. Before deciding on Sanyo, I had looked at other WiFi radios. Based on my research, it appeared that Sanyo was considered to be more reliable than similar radios being offered at the time. The Sanyo performed quite well at first, but after some weeks it began to disconnect and reconnect after a few minutes of playing. I initially took this to be a buffering problem and was to be expected. I had experienced buffering while listening to radio stations over the computer. As time went on, the disconnects and reconnects became intolerably frequent. I finally decided to contact Sanyo Service. I was informed that Sanyo's warranty coverage period was 90 days for parts and labor for this product. However, my Sanyo was now approaching 4 months old and out of warranty. I was advised that I could send my radio to Sanyo for service. The cost of repair was estimated at $100 plus the cost of shipping both ways. I concluded that spending any more money on this product would not be sensible. When the radio totally failed, I did, however, send a letter to Sanyo detailing my concerns. I have never received a response. This experience makes me wonder how a manufacturer, such as Sanyo, could place a product on the market with only a 90-day warranty - a product that cost close to $200? Based on my experience, I would not recommend the Sanyo WiFi R227.
